TACC has announced that the center’s new Rodeo cloud computing offering is available for researchers that need large-scale resources, but prefer a virtualized, on-demand environment.
A call for proposals for HPC cloud-based application experiments has been issued by the Fortissimo Project. Fortissimo is a new initiative launched in Europe specifically designed to assist manufacturers – especially SMEs – that have not yet realized the benefits of modeling and simulation (M&S) to boost their competitiveness.
“This partnership will bring supercomputer performance to the corporate data center, expanding the use of GPU accelerators well beyond the traditional supercomputing and technical computing markets,” said Ian Buck, vice president of Accelerated Computing at Nvidia. “It will also provide existing supercomputing and high performance computing customers with new choices and technologies to build powerful, energy-efficient systems that drive innovation and scientific discovery.”
The new AweSim project at OSC is developing an “App Store for HPC” to help manufacturers move towards virtual design and testing.
A collaboration between CoolIT Systems, Canada, and the Schools of Computing and Mechanical Engineering at University of Leeds has been set up to analyze the influence of proximity liquid cooling on cloud-based workload algorithms.
